Teaching in a conservatory type of school of music, meant that there was at least one teacher per instrument in the orchestra. In my old building, I availed myself of a restroom that was frequented by brass and wind players. It was sometimes quite the scene after lunch, when 2-3 guys would be brushing and foaming like made. And they kept going. They would even spit and rinse, then put more toothpaste on the brush. The foaming was like rabid dogs. But of course, these guys were protecting their embouchures and bone loss prevention is the name of the game. Don't know why, but the phrase popped into my head, "Brush your teeth like a brass player." That would be a "clever" way to say to brush really, really well. But "like a brass player" gives the act a sense of urgency or survival, since once those teeth go, so goes the career. (OK, some really interesting exceptions, the most notable being Chet Baker.) Surely there are other expressions like this: "Change your tire like ____," "Park your car like ____," "Party like _____," "Solder like a _____," "Make love like a _____," etc. Since I am obviously bored, any attempts to chime in and be funny/philosophical will be much appreciated on my end.
